Synopsis

At the border of the desert in southern Morocco, five people are involved in the robbery of an armored van transporting gold bullion from a nearby mine. The robbers are Travis, an Argentine playboy; Lila, a young Frenchwoman; Vibert, an aging mine engineer who conceived the plan; Jose, an Italian garage mechanic; and George, an American adventurer. Once the robbery has been successfully executed, Travis murders Jose and then turns on George. Lila slips a gun to George, and he kills Travis in self-defense. Lila and George flee to Tangiers with the gold, but Vibert catches up with them and demands his share. He also accuses Lila of planning the murders and warns George that he will be the next victim. Unsure of Lila's true feelings, George asks her to give all the money to Vibert to prove her love. Lila, however, considers the request excessive and the three go their separate ways. Some time later, Vibert and Lila show up at a railroad station where the gold has been hidden in a locker. But the police are waiting, and the two thieves are shot and killed. George, the sole survivor of the ill-fated scheme, leaves town for another destination and another adventure.
